M-O Unbeatens Run To Easy Wins

Cougars Rush For 493 Yards And 8 Teedees To Rout Gillett 62-6; Fischer, Wolverines Slam Suring

Finding plenty of success on the ground, a pair of M-O Conference unbeaten teams enjoyed easy wins as Coleman crushed visiting Gillett 62-6 while the Crivitz Wolverines rode a 4 touchdown effort by senior Ben Fischer to a 45-12 rout of host Suring.

Coleman amassed 520 yards in offense, including 493 yards on the ground and 8 touchdowns, to run Gillett ragged. Meanwhile at Suring, Fischer erupted for 182 yards and those 4 scores as the Wolverines maintained their share of the league lead.

The lopsided wins improve both teams to 2-0 in the conference standings along with pre-season favorite Peshtigo, which blasted host Lena-STAA 59-0.

Looking to stay among the M-O leaders, Coleman will face a stiff challenge Friday with a road trip to Peshtigo.

In terms of our next game, it doesn 't get easier for us.  Peshtigo is very experienced, well-coached, and their size is a major concern.  They can do so many things of offense that you can spend too much time preparing for formations forgetting that they still want to be a power running team.  Our front 8 will need to play well and limit their big runs, we will have to look at substituting our defensive line early and often to prevent them from being worn out later in the game, Coleman coach Jeff Bronson explained. In a perfect game, we need to slow the game down.  We need 40-50 carries for right around 160-200 yards.  Realistically we know we can 't live with the big play but consistently gain 3 1/2 to 4 yards and keep the ball out of their possession.  We cannot have wasted downs on Friday.

Continuing Bronson said...we know they are good and will be the favorite, but we are planning to make them earn everything Friday night.  I can 't see our kids giving up without a fight.

While Coleman takes on the Bulldogs, Crivitz should have an easier time hosting Lena-STAA on Friday.

The only other game on tap saw Wausaukee get ambushed by Almond-Bancroft 41-0 in a non-league affair. Despite the loss, the Rangers did manage to pick up a forfeit win over Three Lakes for their scheduled crossover clash. Seems that Three Lakes opted for 8-man football this year, giving Wausaukee the easy win. The victory will count in the conference standings, but not on Wausaukee’s overall record.

Coleman Runs

Past Gillett 62-6


Unleashing a devastating ground attack, Coleman had no trouble disposing of visiting Gillett Friday 62-6. Relying on their running game for 493 yards and all 8 touchdowns, Coleman scored early and often for its second straight conference win.

A total of 11 Cougars carried the pigskin, highlighted by 151 yards in 14 carries and a touchdown by Dexter Karban. Marc Lansin added 5 rushes for 93 yards and two scores, Brandon Pagel 4-88 and two teedees, Trevor Seewald 7-71 and a touchdown while Blake Margis and Kevin Lansin also found the comforts of the end zone.

I thought the team did some better things offensively. Our trap game is still not where it should be, but other than that, we did a better job controlling the line. Defensively, I was proud of the execution of the team. They kept Zeitler in the pocket and we took the slant away for most of the evening.  Those were our two goals going into the game and they accomplished them, Coleman coach Jeff Bronson said. Overall, we have some things to fix yet, special teams is at the top of the list, but we got everyone in a home game and multiple backs had success.

The Cougars needed just two plays to produce their opening score as Karban got the call twice, the second run going 54 yards to the end zone. Margis added the conversion run for an 8-0 lead.

Gillett didn’t wait long to answer. Taking the ensuing kickoff, Monte Noffke rambled 77 yards in the other direction for a teedee. A conversion kick by Dan Torres missed the mark and left Gillett in arrears 8-6 at the 9:28 mark.

That was as close as the Tigers would get as Coleman scored the next 54 points to win going away.

Bronson and his staff were all smiles after two more scores in the opening period. Following the ensuing kickoff, Seewald hauled in a 27 yard pass from Margis then watched Brandon Pagel bolt 20 yards to the end zone. Marc Lansin added the conversion run for a 16-6 edge.

After holding Gillett on downs, the Cougars saw Seewald return a punt to the 34 with Margis capping the drive on a 25 yard scamper. Margis hit Marc Lansin on the conversion pass for a comfortable 24-6 lead.

The only score of period two came with 10:25 remaining as Pagel busted loose on a 48 yard burst. A conversion pass by Margis missed the mark as Coleman took a 30-6 edge into intermission.

A nifty kickoff return of 25 yards by Jackson Margis to midfield got Coleman rolling in the third quarter. Four plays later Marc Lansin tallied the first of his two scores on an 8 yard run. Seewald tacked on the conversion points for a 38-6 cushion.

Following a turnover, Lansin was back in the end zone, this time on a 55 yard jaunt for a 46-6 lead. Seewald added the 7th touchdown of the game for Coleman with a 29 yard run then watched Kevin Lansin tally the conversion points.

The final Coleman score came in the 4th quarter as Kevin Lansin blasted over from 2 yards out and Zack Zeitler tallied the conversion points.

While the Coleman offense will get most of the credit, the defense held Gillett to 100 total yards. Quarterback Alex Zeitler hit on 9 of 21 passes for 110 yards, but the ground game went backwards, losing 10 yards on 19 carries. Junior back Monte Noffke gained 6 yards on 13 rushes while Zeitler lost 14 yards on 4 carries. Senior receiver Dylan Roberts hauled in 6 passes for 95 yards, the longest going for 44 yards.

Fischer, Crivitz In Big

Win Over Suring 45-12


A big performance by senior running back Ben Fischer sparked the Crivitz Wolverines to an easy 45-12 road win over defending M-O Conference champion Suring. The 195 pound Crivitz runner busted through the Suring defense for 182 yards on 22 carries and 4 touchdowns. Three of the scores came via the ground on gallops of 21, 47 and 18 yards while adding a 77 yard teedee toss from Colton Lange.

Fischer set up the first score by intercepting a Cleo VanBellinger pass and returning it to the Suring 30. Two plays later Fischer broke free on a 21 yard jaunt for a 6-0 lead.

Crivitz upped the lead to 8-0 by blocking a Suring punt out of the end zone for a safety. Getting the ball back on the free kick, Crivitz saw Fischer scoot 47 yards to paydirt. Lange hit Cameron Fischer on the conversion pass to go up 16-0.

Suring stayed close on its next possession as VanBellinger found the comforts of the end zone on a 10 yard run.

Scoring twice in period three, Crivitz was able to pad its cushion to 30-6 at the 5:20 mark. Fischer again led the charge hauling in a short pass from Lange and turning it into a 77 yard touchdown. Moments later following more punting problems for Suring, Fischer bolted 18 yards to the end zone.

The Eagles got within 30-12 with just under two minutes left in period three as VanBellinger scored from 6 yards out.

The final 12 minutes belonged to Crivitz and two more teedees. Sam Banaszak raced 31 yards with a fumble recovery then watched Josh Spink score on a 5 yard run.

Crivitz held a 310-228 edge in total yards, 214 of those coming on the ground.

Suring running back Dillon Kempen, who rushed for 331 yards and 5 touchdowns in a lopsided win over Lena-STAA last week, was limited to 58 yards on 23 carries.

Rangers Roughed Up

By Almond-Bancroft


Stepping off the conference gridirons, the Rangers hit the road and suffered a 41-0 loss at the hands of Almond-Bancroft. Wausaukee was overmatched on both sides of the ball, giving up 549 yards of total offense while failing to get on the scoreboard.

Despite totaling 159 yards, the brightest spot for the Rangers was the passing of quarterback Beau DeLaet to Aaron Schlies. The duo clicked 6 times for 101 yards while Eric Arndt snagged 3 passes for a minus 2 yards. On the ground, Wausaukee saw DeLaet carry 18 times for 41 yards while Russell Smith chipped in with 9 carries for 26 yards.

Hard running Reegan Anderson proved to be too much for the Wausaukee defense as the back finished with 22 carries for 212 yards and three touchdowns. Anderson scored on a 60 yard run in the first quarter, one yard out in period two before catching a 26 yard pass from Evan Pagel in the third frame.

Pagel connected on 6 of 11 throws for 154 yards and two touchdowns while suffering a trio of interceptions. Schlies picked off a pair of passes for 22 yards and Arndt one.

Almond-Bancroft built up a 27-0 halftime cushion then added two more scores in the third frame.
